AARGH
The All-Arizona Regional Gathering Halcyon*

Imagine spending a spectacular weekend at a two-story House Party during Arizona's finest season at a luxury Scottsdale resort! Arizona's three powerhouse groups, Greater Phoenix Mensa, Tucson Mensa, and Borderline Mensa, present the All-Arizona Regional Gathering Halcyon! You belong at the AARGH!

In beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona
December 10th - 12th, 2004

* halcyon n 1: a bird identified with the kingfisher and held in ancient legend to nest at sea about the time of the winter solstice and to calm the waves during incubation. 2: golden age as in halcyon days; time of oneís life.

The AARGH will be hosted at the beautiful desert grounds of the Doubletree La Posada Resort, in the heart of Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Arizona. Hold on to your hats, because the single/double winter room rate at La Posada for the AARGH is only (drum roll please . . .) $89 per night! Not only does this special rate represent a huge discount off the usual December room price, it is less than even the summer rates currently being advertised in the Phoenix area at comparable resorts. Whatís more, the property is absolutely beautiful with its million-gallon waterfall pool and multiple Jacuzzis, tennis courts, single-level casita-style accommodations with terraces and views of Camelback Mountain, and all the amenities you can expect from a high-end hotel resort. There is even a game room/arcade with air hockey inside the gigantic rock waterfall feature adjacent to the pool! Aside from all the great AARGH activities and programs, the opportunity for a winter weekend getaway at this venue at this price is an opportunity not to be missed!

Friday night, Dec 10th, the festivities will kick off with a special Murder Mystery Dinner, a $50 catered affair which is being offered to AARGH registrants for only $25 per person (adults and children 12 and over, only, please). You can register for the AARGH, with or without the Murder Mystery Dinner, and make your room reservation with La Posada now, so donít delay! Whether youíre an RG veteran, or a new or inactive member who has never ventured to a Mensa gathering, this is as good as it gets. You belong at the AARGH!!!
